"For the last few years I have been photographing people from different backgrounds and lifestyles. The priest in the picture has been living in the same monastery that I have visited with my family since I was a child. The day I took the photo, I had planned with my wife to visit the monastery and the priest. I took my equipment with me as I always wanted to take a picture of him.
When we got there, we sat down with him, got his blessing and heard his life story.
When I took the photo it was such a pure moment because the priest is almost blind but all his positive energy and emotions were shown in one picture."
